The next morning when liaymoml
Belmont took leave of the La Ytrgne's,
Mr. La Yergne very earnestly urged
him to consider tht ir hoiwe his home
during his stay in the woods.
Although he knew of nothing that
would please him better, he at first hesi
tated to accept this hospitable invita
tion; but involuntarily glancing toward
Carrie, he observed her looking at him
with a peculiar light in her eyes that
seemed to second the invitation.
This deciih-d the matter; and accept
ing with many thanks, he bade the
family good morning with a strange
feeling at his heart which he had never
before experienced as he saw a smile of
satisfaction upon the lips of Carrie and
the light flush of pleasure mantling her
cheeks. He picked up his gun and fol
lowed Pat into the woods to take his
first lesson in wood-chopping.
Pat did nut entertain very exalted
hopes that his new pupil would achieve
eminent success in the art; and when
Raymond awkwardly picked up the ax
and gave it a preparatory swing, Pat's
mouth began perceptibly to widen un
til it threatened entirely to separate the
upper portion of his head from the re
mainder of his body; and when Ray
mond struck a blow at the tree, which
llow fell within nearly a foot of the
point at which it was aimed, the ax
glanced, was violently jerked from his
hand and landed in a cluster cf bushes
some eight er ten feet away, the grin
exploded into a peal of laughter that
made the forest ring and startled a
black squirrel that was quietly gnawing
an atom a few rods distant, and sent
him with glaring eyes and terror-stricken
mien, scampering up a neighboring
tree when- !,c quickly secreted himself
in a hole and : '.e.l during the remain
der of the I , . y . i, frill to come out lest

Irorn the 1 .M.man should utterly an

covered country from whose bourne no
liaymond, with a feeling of mortifica
tion he cmild not find words to express,
and a sheepish expression of disgust
stealing over his countenance at the
Signal failure of his first effort, hunted

This time he was slightly more success

escaping him. but struck within about

lie struck a few more blows, all of
which were isolated from each other by
bucn a distance that thev ronld hardly
claim to be in the same neighborhood,
ana ai length one umuekv stroke, d
cided him never to attempt another, for
the ax glanced upon the, hark of the
tree, swerved to one side and buried it
seirnauway mine grounu wnnm an
infinitesimal fraction of an inch of one
of his feet. Jle sprang backward in
alarm, and Pat suddenly stopped laugh
ing and held his breath in afl right,think-
tng Ins pupil Lad crippled himself for
"There! I think that will answer," ex
claimed Raymond when he was assured
mat he was unharmed. "J think I have
clearly demonstrated that 1 have no
genius, aud I believe I can never achieve
lame as a wood-chopper."
"Ilowly Jlother! Aleve hinted?" ex
claimed the Irishman. throwing up both
bands and springing forward.
"Xo, thank fortune I have received
no injury" answered Raymond. "Rut
I believe I have had a narrow escape.
A quarter of an inch to the left would
have made me a cripple. See! I have
haved a piece off the soleofmv boot
as it is!" continued he, holding lip his
foot and showing where the keen blade
of the ax had smoothly sliced off a small
"A purty close call," said Pat, critic-
ally examining the damaged boot where
the ax had marked it. "I guess I won't
continey givin' ye instructions in the
foine art o' choppin', fur I plainly dis
kiver that ye hain't got the rekisit
amount o' genius to raclie the top o' the
ladder in this honored profession, if
ye'll excuse me fur talkin' plain to ylz."
"0, 1 certainly tnl:e tiooilensent your
plain lannnas'for it is perfectly clear
to me tliat 1 must plod along in Home
other hplicrd in life, ami never hope to
attain eminence as a wood-chopper. So,
L'ratefnl for my narrow escape, nnd
thanking you for your efforts to make
something of nie, I will resume my old
occupation of hunting in the hope that
I may achieve Biilllcient siieeess to he
able to obtain a turkey to present my
hostess on my return to-night." And
picking up his gun, he strode away into
the woods, and Pat picked up the ax
and attacked the tree that had been
mutilated by his pupil.
A few days subsequent to the events
just narrated, Carrie, as had been her
custom whenever she could be spared
from labor at the house, went out into
the woods to search for new specimens
for her herbarium.
Julian was busily employed to accom
pany her, and as she had become so
will acquainted with the woods for
some distance around that she had no
fears of getting lost, she usually went
alone now, or rather attended only by
the faithful dog Towner.
Pat had informed her that at a dis
tance of about a mile from the house,
in a northerly direction, he hail discov
ered a different llower from any he had
before seen, and Carrie determined to
secure specimens of them.
A ith her basket for holding speci
mens upon her arm she tripped away
into the woods, merrily singing snatches
itf lively songs and listening to the birds
caroling their hymns of praise and
thanksgiving to their Creator.
The dog followed closely by her side,
occasionally springing away a few steps
in chase of a rabbit that quickly leaped
out of sight among the trees and bushes,
when he would return and take his
position beside his mistress as if he
knew it was his business to act the pi.rt
of escort and protector toward her.
In this way they traveled along until
they reached the place designated by
Pat, where the strange llowers grew,
and then Carrie found herself amply re
paid for her walk, in the beautiful
specimens which here presented them
selves to her view. It was a species of
lily, but more gorgeous in its colors than
any she had yet discovered; and when
she proceeded to examine one of them
with the aid of a magnifying glass she
carried with her, she discovered hi the
arrangement of its organs, its nectaries
and its various parts, still enhanced
She searched her botany to find the
name given it by botanists, but the
most careful search was unrewarded by
the discovery of any description in her
books of the plant before her.
She realized that she had made a dis
covery, and like all dabblers in science
she felt no little elation on account of
this discovery. She carefully examined
several individual llowers, noting in her
note book every peculiarity of the plant
and placed several specimens of llower,
leaf, stalk and root in her basket to
take home with her for further study.
She found a few stalks from which
the blossoms had fallen, and in their
places were ripened seeds. These she
gathered and placed in the pocket of
her dress, intending to plant them in
her llower garden at home.
She had noticed that for some time
the dog manifested signs of uneasiness,
lie would run about, snulling the air,
then with his nose to the ground, would
dart off into the woods, only to return
a minute or two later and throw him
self upon the ground at her side, where
he would remain but a few moments,
and then with a low growl would spring
to his feet, snuff the air, place his noso
to the irround and dart off into the
woods again, only to return as beloro
and repeat the same performance.
''Why, Towser: What is the matter,
old fellow? What makes you act so
strangcly'i"' asked Carrie, ratling the
dog's head when for the third or fourth
time he had thrown himself down by
her side, and with bristles erect, was
gazing keenly into the woods. As site
spoke, he turned his Head, wnn mow
whine looked up into her face and wag
ged his tail. Then he sprang up, and
with a low growl, darted away again.
She called him back, and as he sat down
close to her side, his eyes fixed upon
some point in the forest, his limbs trem
bling with excitement, Carrie knew
that his actions denoted something un
"What is the matter, good TowserV"
asked she, looking in the same direction
in which the dog's gaze pointed; but she
could see nothing except the tree trunks
interspersed with husln-s and under
brush. "Do vim see anvthingV Is there
a bear or a panther out there or is it
only a rabbit that you" want to have a
race with? Come! I have all the llowers
I want now, and we will take a si roll in
that direction and see what we can lind
l otne I owser; aim rising ami lucking
up her basket, she started in Hie direc
tion the dog was gazing.
Towser arose, but instead of starling
eagerly lin;iil, he whined, caught hi
tiros m Ins teeth mul endeavored to
draw her in another direction.
"What is the matter with yon. Tow
sei ?' exclaimed she, "don't vmi know
von are tearing my dress. Come on
sir! We will go home now!"
Tims sharply spoken to. the dog n
linquished Ins hold upon Int dress, hut
he :-till seeiie'd reluctant to proceed.
1 he niauli ii advanced a few steps
but the dog remained standing in his
tracks whining as if he were trsiugto
speak and looking at lit r with an ex
pression of entreaty in his eves. She
attributed these actions upon Urn part
of the dog to his desire to remain longer
in the vicinity of the llowers.
She started on saying: "Well Towser,
you can remain where you are if you
wWi to do so. but I am going home."
The dog, perceiving that his mistress
could not be dissuaded I'nini proceed
ing, sprang up and hounded a few steps
in advance. Then he stopped in front
or her with another expressive whine,
and as she approached, caught her dress
with his teeth and interposed his body
in her way.
"Why! What in the world ails the
log?" exclaimed Carrie. "Why Towser!
I never saw you net in this w'av l.ef.m.'
Don't you want to go home? a pretty
j escort indeed you are to plant yourself
in my way for mo to stumble over, and
tear my dress with your teeth. Come
on, sir!" she added sharply as she start
ed to proceed.
The dog, thus admonished, stalked
on a few steps in front, but he con
tinued to whine at intervals while his
keen eyes were gazing in the woods
ahead, and his ears were pointing in the
Thus they passed on for ten rods or
more, w hen all at once with a low growl
of anger, Towser sprang back to his
mistress, seated himself upon his
haunches directly in front of her, his
wholo body quivering with fear or ex
citement, the bristles upon his back
erect and his eyes fixed upon some ob
ject in the top of a tree not far distant.
A slight rustling in the tree caused
Carrie suddenly to turn her eyes in that
direction, when a sight met her gaze
that froze her young blood and seemed
to paralyze every muscle with fear and
Upon a horizontal branch about twen
ty feet from the ground and not fifty
distant from where she was standing,
lay the yellowish-brown body of a huge
panther, its wide mouth open, display
ing its blood-red gums and glittering,
stilletto-like teeth, its glaring eyes fixed
with a fascinating power upon her, its
sharp claws working in and out of the
mossy bark of the tree as if making
ready for a sure and fatal spring, its
serpent-like tail geutly swaying to and
fro with a sinuous, snaky motion, seem
ed to chain her to the spot where she
stood and deprive her of all power.
She essayed to scream, but though
her lips parted, no sound came forth.
Despite her fear, she was still in pos
session of iiason, arid how alert was
She could distinctly hear the rippling
of the stream as its waters ran murmur
ing by a few rods away. The hum of
insects .sounded preternaturally plain
to her ears, she even noted how clear'
and blue was the sky above the tree
tops. She believed she was about to
die a cruel death from the teeth and
claws of the savage beast perched in
the tree near her, and her whole mind
was tilled w ith horror at the thought of
so terrilde a fate.
She thought of homo and the dear
ones tin-re how alarmed they would
feel when n'ght should have como and
she had not returned. How they would
start out to search for her. thinking she
was lost in the woods; and what grief
would wring their hearts when, after a
long search, they would find her torn
and mangled body lying dead upon the
ground dead from the terrible teeth
an l cl.iws of the panther.
She thought too of liaymond. Would
he, too. fei 1 grief at sight of her dead
and mangled body? Of course he would
feel sorrow as over the untimely death
of any acquaintance, but would he
liioiu n for her as she would for him
were their positions changed? These
and many other thoughts crowded her
mind as thoughts crowd the minds of
those who are facing certain and sud
den death. She did not fear to die, if
she e,uld die at home, surrounded by
friends as did her little brother Willie;
for nhe believed that to her, death
would only be a transition to an infi
nitely higher, better life; but to die thus
it seemed so hard.
Rut the panther, which had appar
ently delayed its attack that its victim
might suffer mental tortures more ter
rible than death itself, began to make
unmistakable preparations for the fatal
spring. Its hind feet were gathered
firmly underneath its body, its tail lash
ed ildlyto and fro, its whole body
quivered as it was concentrating all its
nowers. and Carrie felt that the next
moment would be her last on eartn,
when crock! rang out the sharp report
f a ritle, and the panther gave vent to
a shrill scream of anguish as a bullet
rushed through its brain, and it sprang
from the limb in the direction of the
Rut it fell short ot her by a few feet,
and as it struck the ground quivering
in the agonies of death, brave old 1 ow
ser sprang forward and grappled with
it lest in its death struggles it should
do harm to his mistress, and Raymond
I'elmont, for it was he who chanced to
be parsing near, saw the panther, and
fired the shot not one moment too soon,
sprang forward, caught the fainting
girl in his arms and bore her out of
reach of tho plunging, struggling, dying
A n.v nwoons wimnixo.
Raymond had been hunting on that
day, and providentially happened to he
in that part of the forest in time to save
the life of the girl.
"When he first arrived in sight of Car
rie, she was standing with her hamls
clasped in front of her, and her eyes
fixed upon a point in a tree near by,
w hile her dog sat in front of her, gazing
in the same direction.
Although some distance from her, ho
could see the expression of horror upon
her pale countenance, and knew that
some frightful object was before her.
He followed with his eyes the direction
of her gaze, and he saw enough to as
sure him of the cause of her fright. He
could see part of the outline of the pan
ther too nearly hidden by the branches
of intervening trees to render a shot
from where he stood sure.
With a prayer upon his lips that he
might be able to save the girl, he hast
ened to a point where be could make
his aim certain, and arrived ju.st in timo
to bring about the happy result chroni
cled in the last chapter.
Carrie was weak from fright, and
gladly accepted tho proffer of his strong
arm to assist, her to her home. I'pon
her arrival and narrat ion of her narrow
escape, it may be l ightly conjectured
that Uaymond was not lowered any in
the estimation ol luc lanniy.
Towser did not escape entirely un
harmed, tor the panther in his dying
struggles had indicted several severe
woundii upon tho body of tho faithful
dog; but these healed in time, and with

portionate importance. Such an event
occurred a few weeks subsequent to
Carrie's adventure with the panther.
A young hidy residing about, two
miles from the house of Mr. La Veigne
and his nearest neighbor at that, was
to be married to a young backwoods
man by the name of Joseph West. In
vitations were given out more than two
weeks previous, and of course the La
Vergno family and Raymond Relmont
were among the favored ones.
printing ollices were not easily ac
cessible, hence no fancifully decorated
printed invitations were issued, but
they were written upon scraps of fools
cap paper and enclosed in yellow envel
opes, and read something as follows:
"Yourself aii'l family are invited to at
tend a wedding at the house of Moses Hay
nor mi Wednesday eveiiiiiK tho third lust.
,. JosKI'il Wkst
Sl"'m(1: M.VItY lUYXon."
These little missives created consider
able excitement among their recipients
particularly Carrie La Vergno and Ray
mond llelniont who, in addition to the
general invitation, were also invited to
"stand up" with the happy couple.
This important event rendered it
necessary for liaymond to make a hur
ried trip to Detroit to prepare himself
for it. Carrie commissioned him to
make some little purchases for herself,
and the expictant bride and groom like
wise requested him to bring certain
articles for them which could not be
purchased at the store at which they
usually did their shopping.
Raymond agreed to attend to these
matters, and when he returned, the
satisfied smiles with which all viewed
the articles he had purchased for them,
were exceedingly complimentary to his
good taste anil judgment; but he did
not inform thtm that in making the se
lections, he had called into requisition
the assistance of a recently married
lady of excellent taste in matters of
dress and ornament, and in failing to
confess this, he was perhaps censurable;
but like many other people of excellent
qualities, he possessed a vein of selfish
ness in his composition, and unblush
ingly appropriated all the praise to him
self which was in part due to others.
Rut perhaps this appropriation upon
his part was pardonable, as no one else
was injured by it.
At length the long-looked-for day ar
rived. The sun passed the meridian
and began to near the western horizon,
and doubtless his course was closely
watched from the log house of Mr.
Haynor, by the expectant bride who
looked forward with no little tremu
Jousness to the event which might re
sult happily or disastrously upon her
Mr. La Vergne decided that it was
time to start. The large wagon was
driven to the door, the whole family in
cluding liaymond, with Pat for driver,
all decked out in holiday attire, started.
Jolting over protruding roots, dodging
the low-hanging branches that threat
ened to snatch off and toss far away
their hats and bonnets, and engaging
in little, sharp, and decisive conflicts
with the myriads of mosquitoes and
wood flies that pounced upon them ra
venously thirsting for their life-blood,
they arrived in due time, and found
themselves among the earliest of the
guests, only a few having reached there
A few more soon arrived, and then it
began to grow dark. In the western
forests twilight is of exceedingly brief
duration. Darkness follows closely the
retreating sun. As soon as it became
dark, several of the young men were
despatched into the woods in different
directions with lanterns, to guide those
who were belated. Soon lights might
have been seen flashing here and there
among the trees, some approaching and
some receding, some leading in wagons
and some searching for others.
Shouts and halloos could be heard
from the young men bearing lanterns,
succeeded by answering shouts from
parties who were coming. About nine
o'clock in the evening, the last expected
party had arrived. 1 he teams, most ol
which were oxen, were unhitched from
the wagons and secured by the draw
chains to the trunks of neighboring
After all the guests had congregated
in the one large room of the house, the
bride and bridegroom with theirattend
ants who had remained in another room
until the proper moment should arrive,
were notified that all things were ready,
and clothed in their wedding habili
ments they now marched out and took
the place assigned them.
The society editor of some city paper,
had such a personage been present,
would have described the bride as an
angel incarnate, and the bridegroom
as an Apollo, and in part he would have
been right, and in part wrong. Tho
bride was indeed beautiful. In fact,
many a young man present wished him
self in place of the happy groom. Her
form and features were plump and ex
quisitely rounded by good health, al
though to-night the roses in her cheeks
were a shade paler, and her form slight
ly trembled with a little nervoiisexcite
incnt as she walked across the room,
leaning upon the arm which, hence
forth, would support her during the
period of their natural lives.
If there were some who envied the
bridegroom, there were many others
who envied Raymond Relmont when ho
cut' red the room with the beautiful,
graceful Carrie L Vergne leaning up
on his arm. The bride and Carrie were
la ith acknowledged the two most beauti
ful girls in the backwoods; but while
Nature seemed to have taken special
pains in moulding the form and fea
tures of both, there was a refined, intel
lectual expression upon the face and in
the eye of Carrie, denoting superior
educational endowments or acquire
ments that were lacking in tho other
Rut, although in this particular, Car
rie was superior to the bride, in point
of moral goodness and real loveablo wo
manliness, they were perhaps equal,
and both were gems of the first water.
The bridegroom of course lacked the
easy self-possession of Raymond Rel
mont, but he was a rough diamond
whom attrition with society and with
the world might yet polish until ho
should shine forth a finished gentleman
and one of the noblest works of God;
but to-nU'ht he could hardly refrain
fromexhibiting the little bashfulness
ho felt as he placed himself in position
where he knew he was envied and eriti
rised by many of the yoiingl ack woods
nien who were asscmbl.'d tosio him
take legal possession of one of the
beauties of the woods.
Rut there was a gleam of pride in his
eye and a tenderness in his clasp as he
took the trembling little hand of the
bride in his own toil-hardened one that
plainly told he would not exchange
places- with the proudest monarch of
the most wealthy and powerful nation,
even if the whole world were thrown in
as a bonus.
While we have been making use of
so many words and perhaps wearying
the patience of the reader, the parties
who were to render this occasion one of
importance, have taken their places,
the old minister, who is no other than
our old friend Mr. Morrison, has step
ped forward, joined their hamls. and in
a few solemn words, has pronounced
them man and wife, as such to remain
until death doth them part. A brief
but impressive prayer for their future
usefulness and happiness has been of
fered, and then with smiles and kind
words, all the friends press forward to
offer congratulations and sincere wishes
for long life, joy and prosperity to at
tend the newly-wedded couple.
This part of the ceremony completed,
a long table was spread with such
dainty viands of the season as could be
procured in the backwoods, and then
as many as could secure a place, sur
rounded it and partook of the good
things with which it was laden.
The wedding feast consumed con
siderable time, as the table had to be
reset a couple of times hi l"ie all the
guests had eaten, so that by the time
the tables were finally ch ar, d away, the
hands id' the hou ;e clock pointed to the
hour of midnight
The night was a dark, moonless one,
too dark to reiuh rtravt ling pleasant or
even safe: i.i it was proposed by the
younger members of llio party that the
remaining hours until daylight be em
ployed in the eeahle and exciting
amusement of ibuc-lng.
No one objecting, one of the young
men, w ho was something of a musician
and had brought his violin with him to
be used in case of einertrency, now pro
duced that instrument, tuned it, and
soon its dulcet strains were filling the
log house w ith harmony.
A cotillion was at once formed, tho
dancing began, and continued until the
dawn began to show itself above tho
tree tops towards the ens', and theorbo
teams were hitched to the wagons, ihe
occupants stowed themselves inside,
and with many good byes aud bappy
wishes to the bride and groom who
stood just outside the door smiling
sweetly on this their first day of conju
gal life, started homeward.
